Ushering in 2011 - AB style

Wishing you all a great new year 2011 - AB !

There goes by 2010.. "Thank you thank you and now go away" that's what the Tee reads. Welcoming 2011 as 2010 is history. My dad has this habit of giving unique gifts and this Tee was one from his hat.

We tried some muffins and almond cake and they came out perfect. We got this silicon muffin moulds that work out perfectly for muffins and giving out the right muffin shape.

Also the Pigeon eggs hatched :). Welcome to the world "chinnu" and "munnu" - the pigeon kuttis. We will update a clear pic later.

and of course the foggy days at Bangalore !

Wishing good health and love !

Pigeon guest, dinning table and farewell

Last week we had quite some activity. We had a surprise visitor in our balcony. A pigeon made a small nest in our second balcony and laid couple of eggs. Right now that place is like a maternity ward :)

The eggs....

Then finally our long pending dinning table came along. At least we can make our guests sit comfortably and eat.

Thankfully we had Vinod's farewell at our place with Manjula joining us.

Time to call near and dear !

Caker Baker

So what have we been up to ?

Baking cakes... Oh Yeah ! We've been trying to make a real good cake and for that fact we wanted to make a bread at home. After lots of googling and playing around with our convection microwave we made our first bread and then a banana pie+muffin.

Thanks to Ani who actually knead the dough the way we twist and mash the clothes during rugged washing. This was our first bread and came out very well.

This was made out of Maida (All purpose flour). Next we plan to use Atta (Whole wheat) and see how the result would be. Shall keep you posted !

Convection cooking works !
